Passive. This skill allows the character to inflict two extra points of damage to any foe they can hit From Behind as defined in the Combat section. It applies to any weapon in which the character has the skill. When used with a ranged weapon, the attack only does one extra point of damage but does not have to be from the rear.

The skill can be bought multiple times and the effects are cumulative. Note that each purchase requires trading in a set amount of Back Attacks; see the Back Attack skill for details.

Example: Vert has purchased Backstab once. He leaps out behind enemy lines in a wild melee and strikes his opponent in the back, swinging "4 Normal!" with his Short Sword, taking advantage of the extra two points of damage granted by his Backstab.
